Info & Setlist | Venue

Set includes only tour performance of "Sea Cruise". Springsteen's second appearance at the outdoor venue. Soundcheck is completed with a small audience in attendance - fortunately taped for posterity. During the afternoon the weather at Red Rocks is bright and sunny, but in the evening the temperature drops and it rains heavily. Bruce adjusts the setlist appropriately with the addition of "Who'll Stop The Rain" and "Sea Cruise". "Growin' Up" features the spaceman story. "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" includes "Sweet Soul Music", as well as a snippet of the "Call To The Post" during the band introductions. "Detroit Medley" includes "I Hear A Train", "You Can't Sit Down", "Sweet Soul Music", and "Shake". Bruce emerges during intermission to poll the crowd: should the band play the second set through the rain, or add a makeup show on August 18? The crowd voted overwhelming to carry on. During the encores, Bruce suggests that they might move the next night's show indoors, but similarly, the crowd votes to keep it outdoors.
